To the people who favorite my artwork within the minute I upload it:

No, I am not going to thank you for the shoddy attempt at promoting your gallery.

You are abusing a function of this website that is meant to support artists. Rather than using it as it was meant to be used, you are using it as a dishonest way of getting pageviews.

Look for honest ways to promote your artwork. Don't go around giving people favorites for artwork you don't actually care about just so that they'll go to your gallery to "thank you for the favorite" and thus give you more pageviews so you can flaunt some artificially-bloated number around like a trophy.

To the people who honestly favorite my artwork:

Thank you! I do appreciate it, even if I don't say anything. It makes me glad to see some of my old artwork still being enjoyed and to see new people discovering my artwork. If you don't see a "thank you for the favorite" on your gallery comments from me, it's not because I didn't appreciate the fact that you liked my artwork--it's because I never leave comments like that in order to keep things consistent for the reasons listed above.

If you do go around thanking people for favorites, I understand the good intentions, but I would highly recommend discontinuing this practice, as it encourages crap like the poor behaviors explained earlier in this journal.

tl;dr: I appreciate it when folks honestly like my artwork, but people who favorite artwork the minute it's uploaded only so they can promote their own gallery are jerks.
